Christopher Peifer

NAME: Christopher “The Lifer” Peifer
INSTRUMENT: Bass and vocals (but also play guitar and organ)

1. THE FIRST ALBUM I EVER BOUGHT WASKISS Alive! was the first album I bought with allowance money. But before that, I appropriated my parents’ double vinyl All Things Must Pass. KISS has long since jumped the shark, but I still love that George Harrison record. My brother and I also wore out countless 45s my parents had in their collection, everything from Chuck Berry to doo-wop to the great girl groups. Played on a little suitcase record player, this was my intro to music, and I was hooked.

2. THE FIRST CONCERT THAT I EVER SAW WAS … My dad took me to see KISS – the original, still-in-makeup KISS – on their “Dynasty” tour, which, even including the disco hit, was a revelation, an epiphany! The opening act, who I didn’t yet know, was Judas Priest. They were all in leather, and Halford came roaring onto stage atop a Harley. In contrast to KISS, they had no pyrotechnics, fog machines or confetti, just bare bones, bare knuckle rock. And it was LOUD. Changed my life.
